Avast, ye landlubbers! From the deepest darkest depths of the
Caribbean comes ALESTORM, a drunken band of pirates on an epic
quest to drink your beer, steal your rum, and be the greatest damn
band that ever did sail the seven seas!

From humble beginnings playing shows to farm animals in a field
somewhere in Eastern Scotland, Alestorm have evolved into an
international party machine hellbent on conquering album charts
and festival stages throughout the world, with their infectious brand
of ‘Pirate Metal’ and their dashing good looks. Somehow they’ve
managed to convince hundreds of thousands of people from New
Zealand to Argentina to Lithuania and everywhere inbetween
(except Paraguay), that it’s cool to wear a pirate hat and sing stupid
songs about getting drunk and stealing ships. So prepare your
spleens, because Alestorm are coming to kick ass and chew gum.
And they’re all out of ass.

Also, they have a giant inflatable duck. Does your band have a giant
inflatable duck? No. I didn’t think so.
